    Procurve Device.CLI.Send problems

    commutator13


      Hi,

      I am working with CatTools trial. We used it at my last employer, but not me personally. I think it will do this but I don't know how. Can anyone tell me how to get into configure mode on a Procurve using this CLI activity?

       

      My example: I am trying to add a tagged port to VLAN 128.

       

      1) Created new activity of type "Device.CLI.Send commands"

      2) Entered the name, picked the device, etc. - this stuff works

      3) On Options tab, checked the list of commands checkbox and entered the following:

       

      config

      vlan 128 tag trk24

      sh vlan 128

      exit

       

      4) Chose "Run now" and received error "Did not receive expected response to config command" and the activity aborted.

      5) Unchecked the "Stop on error" checkbox and it worked fine with the following output (I've added CRLF's for readability)

      config

      HPG-SE-A1-1B-064(config)#

      HPG-SE-A1-1B-064(config)#vlan 128 tag trk24

      HPG-SE-A1-1B-064(config)#

      HPG-SE-A1-1B-064(config)# sh vlan 128
      Status and Counters - VLAN Information - VLAN 128


        VLAN ID : 128   
        Name : iView-Grp01                    
        Status : Port-based
        Voice : No
        Jumbo : No


        Port Information Mode     Unknown VLAN Status   
        ---------------- -------- ------------ ----------
        1                Untagged Learn        Down     
        2                Untagged Learn        Down     
      Trk24            Tagged   Learn        Up       

      6) Tried changing the list of commands as follows but it still errored out as in attempt 1 above, it just didn't write to the info log.

       

      %ctUM: EchoOff

      config

      vlan 128 tag trk24

      %ctUM: EchoOn

      sh vlan 128

      %ctUM: EchoOff

      exit

       

      Can anyone that has solved this share the secret with me? Thanks much.
